Schuch, Linda, Ed.
As part of a series of multimedia resources providing relevant information on important topics facing education leaders today, this booklet and accompanying audio compact disks focus on how extended learning programs and services after school can ensure that all students meet academic learning standards. The booklet includes an overview of the need and demands for additional instructional support for underperforming students based on school and societal conditions, describes a statewide summer school program and a district-level after-school program with demonstrated achievement results, and provides information about tools and resources intended to help meet the challenge of proficiency for all students in reading and mathematics through successful extended academic support. Two accompanying audio compact disks provide the viewpoints of various leaders in education who have worked closely with issues related to extended academic support. Included on the disks are interviews with executives of research institutions and for-profit and nonprofit educational associations, administrators of organizations responsible for extended-day or after-school programs, and a state commissioner of education.
